Cassanova McKinzy picks Auburn for Chick-Fil-A

Video: Chick-Fil-A a factor in Cassanova McKinzy's decision to attend Auburn over Clemson

As we reviewed earlier, National Signing Day is an interesting day for many reasons. It gets a lot of fans excited about their teams during the offseason and it "is the only day where it's somehow acceptable for grown men to fawn over a bunch of teenage boys and analyze their every move."

It also is a day when a bunch of 17 year olds are thrown in front of cameras for the first time and asked to talk about the biggest decision of their lives. 

Some players aren't prepared for this, others are. Some give politically correct answers, some pump up their new fan base. And some, like Auburn's newest signee, linebacker Cassanova McKinzy, are just honest about what matters to them.

McKinzy, a four-star recruit, signed with Auburn today over Clemson. Why? Well, partially because they have a Chik-Fil-A on campus and Clemson doesn't. Everyone has their priorities, and kudos to McKinzy for being honest about his. I can't blame the guy--I've only had Chick-Fil-A twice in my life (growing up in New York) and it is pretty awesome. 

Watch the video below (at about the 1:30 mark).

I see no issue with his reasoning. I live 2 blocks from a Chick Fil-A, and I'm not sure how I ever lived without it.
